Bv Nebo's lonely mountnln On this side J or dun s wave. In a vale in the land of Mono, There lies a lonely gruve. And no man dug that, sepulchre, And no man saw it e'er For tbe angels of God upturned thesod And laid the dead man there. That was tbe grandest Inneral That ever passed on earth; But no man beard tr.e trampling ' Or saw the train go forth, Noiselessly as the daylight Comes when tbe night is done. And the crimson streak on ocean's cheek Grows into tbe great sun. Noiselessly as the spring time ' Her crown of verdure weaves. And all ibe trees on all tbe bills Opea their thousand leaves. So without sound of music, Or voice of them that wept, Silently down from the mountain crown The great procession swept. Perchance the bald old eagle On gray Bdttipeor's l.e ght, Out of his rocky eyrio Looked on tbe wondrous sight. Perchance the lion stalking Still shuns that hallowed spot, For beast and bird have seen and beard That which man knoweth not.

And had he not Iiiph honor! the hilU ile for l.i pall; To lie in state while ungels wait, With stars for tapers tall; And the dark rock pines, like tossing plumes, O'er his bier to wave; And God's own hand, in that lonely land To luy him in the grave. In that deep grave without a name, Whence his uncoffined clay Shall break again most wondrous tbo't, Before the judgment day. And stand with Glory wrapped around, On the hill)) he never trod. And speak of the Btrife that wan our lire. With tbe Incarnate Son of God. O, lonely tomb in Meab's land, I', daik Ilethpeor's hill. Speak to these curious hearts of ours. And texch them to be still. God bath bis mysteries of grace Ways tholwe cannot tell; He hides them deep. like the secret sleep Of him ho loved so well. A Trial ok Faith. The best joke of the seannn was perpetrated a lew diiys ago by John Uempie'y, who keeps saloon down town, -on a countryman. A dispute on the subject of religious faith arising between tbe parties, the country mm asserted that Cath olics bad no faith. John bcin? of the lat ter persuasion, denied tho assertion in a most decided manner, aud proposed that a kettle f hot water be brought, and five dollars on a side l.e put up to deeidH as to whose tnith could longest cadurn the pain of thrusting a foot into it. The water was brought and the stakes put up. Denipsey, who, mirk yon. has a wooden leg for bis dowry fur faithful service against tbe late rebellion, thrust in bis wooden foot and held it there for some considerable lime without showing any more symptoms of pain than prudence dictated, the country man then took bis turn, but his foot hud not reacheil the bottom of the vessel before be shrieked with agony and hopped across tbe room, declaring that he was scalded terribly and so he was. Dempsey, ef course, pocketed the stakes and the country man went home none tbe wiser, Iwt doubt less enlightened on the subject of Catholic faith. l'iltston Gazette.
